Attila have fired drummer Bryan McClure after allegations of sexual assault were made against him by former girlfriend Eileen Anderson.

In a lengthy, harrowing statement shared on social media on Thursday, June 25th, Anderson detailed an incident where McClure allegedly sexually assaulted her whilst she was unconscious. The alleged incident took place on Attila’s tour bus after those present were taking part in what they believed to be cocaine, but was actually speed.

“One night we thought we were doing coke with a couple of other guys and it ended up being speed which no one wanted,” Anderson wrote.

Anderson continued to detail that her and McClure were involved in an intense argument that resulted in her sustaining a bloody nose. “We started fighting and he got up to yell at me in my face and the bus swerved and he accidentally fell into me hard which caused me to start gushing blood everywhere out of my nose.”

She continues, “his guitar tech and guitarist were the ones who took care of me immediately while he didn’t even notice right away because he was all worked up and angry.”

Anderson revealed that following the argument she was so emotionally drained that she “passed out.” The alleged assault took place whilst she was unconscious.

“Woke up some time later and my pants were somewhat pulled down,” she details. “I woke up the next day to use the restroom and wondered why it stung to pee and hurt really bad to sit down.

“I wiped myself and saw blood. Then I started wiping more and realized I wasn’t just vaginally bleeding. I don’t like anything anally done to me and it just internally clicks why my pants were pulled down earlier and I start crying.”

In addition to the statement, Anderson uploaded a screenshot of a text exchange between herself and McClure in which McClure acknowledges the sexual assault. “I totally forgot about that yes I’ve told [Attila] and I’ve apologized multiple times for that,” the text reads. “We did fucking speed that night and blacked the fuck out. That’s not who I am.”

In addition to the alleged sexual assault against Anderson, a 19-year-old woman has accused McClure of grooming her from age 16 which led to him asking to exchange nudes once she turned 17. McClure would have been 31 at the time.

“Back in 2017, I met attila. I was 16. I began talking to Bryan. Attila was one of my favorite bands and I was just ecstatic to have someone I admired give me attention,” she wrote.

“I was 17 when he first asked me for nudes. I’ve heard allegations about Fronz and I know how manipulative that band is. They have no regard for age or sobriety when it comes to women consenting. Below I’ve posted screenshots. Last time I called out Bryan was for making ableist comments on my snapchat and I was immediately shut down. I won’t let it happen again.”

Attilla have since taken to social media to condemn the actions of McClure and acknowledge that he is no longer part of the band.

“Over the last 4 years, Attila has been a three-piece band,” they wrote. “We were absolutely digusted to learn of some recent events surrounding a touring member of the band, and earlier this week we parted ways with that member. We do not condone his actions, and we stand with the victims. We are deeply sorry to those affected and want nothing more than love and healing for them.”

The claims against Bryan follow accusations of grooming against Attila’s frontman, Chris Fronzak, that were brought to light earlier this month. In a Twitter thread, a woman named Roxy Vienna accused the frontman of getting her blackout drunk and taking advantage of her intoxicated state.
